VVHS Drought Petition:
Our goal is to lower the prices for IDs and Lanyards. We also want to know where the money made from the IDs is used and we want less strict consequences for the ID loss and/or displacement.
We understand the need for student IDs but should our safety cost this much out of our pockets?
The cost of the ID is 5 dollars and the lanyard is an additional 5 dollars. The lanyards are a new cost implemented this year. Charging these high rates is detrimental to the students and parents who can't afford these fees.
We understand this teaches responsibility, but even leaving the ID at home cost a new replacement. Now the student has two IDs and more if they forget again which is useless. This is excessive and unnecessary to punish students for mistakes. The temporary IDs weren't effective but did not cost. The district or school needs to reform this idea and we can provide ideas.
Consequences of IDs
Many students are upset over the consequences of the IDs. Getting suspended or sent to OCR is making students lose their opportunity to stay in class and learn. The lines on the first-day costs the students education. This fuels students to not show up to class at all and lose ambition to learn.
Should the IDs be the priority over our education?
This is implemented so late in the year, and it makes the students question where their money is going. Are these fees going in the pockets of the district and not benefiting the students? We would like to see specific details released to the students and the public.
WE DO NOT support getting rid of the IDs, and won't take aggressive actions. We would like to be heard, and have a peaceful protest that involves keeping the students safe.
